The characterization of scully, an essential gene of Drosophila with phenocritical phases at embryonic and pupal stages, shows its extensive homology with vertebrate type II L-3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase/ERAB. Genomic rescue demonstrates that four different lethal mutations are scu alleles, the molecular nature of which has been established. One of them… CONTINUE READING
